top story. >> a lot of us join walkathons because we have a personal connection to the cause. but as emily reports, one boy's connection is not only personal, it's amazing. >> there's always excitement when an event like this is about to begin. the crowds, the signs, the different groups with their team shirts. >> let's go! [ cheers and applause ] >> this one-mile march is to raise money for the maria fareri children's hospital in new york's westchester county. it's also raising awareness about the need for transplant donors. that's why it's so special that 11-year-old tyler is here. this is not the first walkathon for tyler. the last time he joined this event, he was just hours from undergoing surgery for a new liver. >> i was really sick, you know? so i had to get a liver transplant. >> tyler had been battling a liver disease for years, and it was getting worse. to get a donated liver, you need to be on a national list. for tyler, time was running out. the hospital's medical team worked hard to get him moved to the top of the list. even so, the wait took more than a year. >

much and may be have other vices that could have an impact, but, you know, tables don't help us very much. there's a good chance that in the next four years, there's one, two, or three vacancies. some depends on when they emerge. if you have a 55-45 democratic senate, and there's a vacancy, barack obama has a little more leeway to pick somebody with a stronger ideological edge than if it's it a 51-49 senate or one that goes the other way. i think your much more likely in any event to get somebody who would be somewhere in the broad center of legal discourse, and there are a lot of operations -- options out there. in many ways, more interesting, is the impact that we'll see now with obama having four years, and maybe a little bit more of an understanding curious that he didn't have it as a constitutional law professor, of the importance of putting forward nominees for appeals courts and district courts. he was really slow in moving to that through his first couple of years, and there's a lot of vacancies there. now he's got opportunities to fill the vacancies, and the controversy over

much. everybody, please have a seat. thank you. good afternoon, everybody. now that those of us on the campaign trail have had a chance to get a little sleep, it is time to get back to work, and there's plenty of work to do. as i said on tuesday night, the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. in that spirit, i have invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. i also intend to bring in business and labor and civic leaders from all across the country to get their ideas as well. in a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that is the focus of the plan that i talked about during the campaign. [applause] it is a plan to reward small businesses and manufacturers to create jobs here, not overseas, a plan to give people the chance to get the education and training that businesses are looking for right now. it is a plan to make sure this country
